The story is very sweet and the heroine and the hero work well with each other.
The pros, the heroine acts like realatively normal person (for a romance novel). She freaks out when the hero shows his beast side, but is able to calm down and think things through. She and the hero do jump into the relationship quickly, (it is a romance novel), but is the not the I see you for all of two minutes and then we we in love and planing children. I also like how the author makes the hero physical different just enough from a normal human. The hero is an alien, but he can also pass for human with his clothes still on, this makes sense or else why would they bother coming to earth in the first place. I like the overall story and the plot is a good idea but,
(The cons) the story felt rushed and pushed along in many of the places. It was railroaded in a few places and end just wrapped up in a bow a lot faster then normal. It almost anticlimatic in how quickly things happen. There should have been more world building and some more background given. But it seems as if the author was figuring it out as she was writing it and didn't go back to fill in the details later. We really need those details for the overall flow of the story. There was also a lot of scene jumping, that made me have to go back and reread stuff just to make sure I was getting it right.
I like the book and think it has a lot of potential, and the series is a good idea, but it felt like it needed a few more beta reads before it should have gone to print.
There were some things in the story that just should have been left out, as they did not add to the story in my opinion, & felt like the author just wanted to add to the story somehow whether to make it more bizarre/alien-ish or just to up the story somehow, even if it made no sense to add it in (like the nipple ring things, maybe trying to make this BDSM? or the feeler things on his penis- just too weird to even want to contemplate, just gross in my mind.) The sex scenes were mostly boring & seemed to center on abusing her boobs, her being manhandled -not just rough but to the point of pain/bruising, or the his/her pleasure coming back from the feeler things on his penis.
ALL the characters seemed to change drastically from strong, to wimpy/nerdy attitudes. There was a lot of ideas that helped add to the conflict of character personality. (Example -a warrior bred to kill/fight that plays video games for fun just seemed nerdy not warrior like. I would expect them to train, spar, work out, play at extreme physical sports, not play video games.) I sorta liked Aran & his brothers, but I was not thrilled with Rena or her friend, Dee. Both girls seemed too childish, self absorbed & annoying for 30 some year old women. Their relationship should have been more evolved as best friends, almost as much as the brothers' were. The characters really didn't develop a real personality or evolve thru the story. I would not even consider reading the next book in the series, as I almost did not finish this one. Definitely would not recommend spending money to buy this.
Not only did the main female character keep uttering the phrase "Oh sweet sanity" but she was perfectly fine with having sex with someone who not fifteen minutes before literally transformed from a man to an alien, claws, teeth, feelers and all! Oh, but wait! Immediately after he changed in front of her and before they had sex, he dropped his pants so she could touch his unusual sexual organs because clearly the first thing you do after meeting an alien is give him a hand job.
The heroine, she is okay. I do like that she seems to be so accepting of everyone, no real freak outs.
The series/plot has potential- just need to help them grow up.
